On Thursday night, there was wailing and gnashing of teeth, not ours, due to Middle Lad failing to inform Mom and Dad, until Tuesday, of a Science Project that was due on Friday. Middle Lad had as well Al Gebra II homework, an English Essay, a Spanish Quiz, and a History Essay. Needless to say, as Nannie Pennie and Tutor Pennie, I had my paws full. Human teens just never learn that if they have know for well on a week about a Project, that said Project can be completed in a timely fashion without putting the entire family through undue duress and without incurring drastic punishment upon themselves. (I was certain that this time Mom was going to let me bite him.)
Sophie and I were forced to stay up exceedingly late Thursday night, and then had to get up very early on Friday morning. We had to help quiz Middle Lad on his Spanish vocabulary, as well help him with his Al Gebra and History, for he just got too tired Thursday night after gluing all those neutrons and protons together, and arranging electrons.
Dad was supposed to get up at 4:30 AM! to leave for a meeting.
Dad's alarm went off at 4:30. He promptly grumped: "Do the Dog's HAVE to sleep on MY side of the bed!" Then he went back to snoring. Mom, Sophie and I never went back to achieving a good level of slumber.
Middle Lad and Mom got up at 5:00 AM, and of course Sophie and I got up as well; to commence our duties as Tutor Pennie and Tutor Sophie. Dad snored away until 5:50!
Here is the issue: At 4:30 AM when Dad's alarm went off: MOM was snuggled up against Dad. Sophie and I had NO body parts in any way infringing upon Dad's side of the bed; we were both completely on the other side of Mom.
Needless to say, DAD has found himself in the doghouse.
